The Depth of His Sovereign Love

What a wonderful revelation of Jesus Christ.
He really is working all things, including every trial we endure, after the counsel of His own will.
It is so hard for the flesh to acknowledge this when the flesh is suffering. But that very suffering is what qualifies us to console others as the rulers of His kingdom both during the thousand years and afterward:

2Co 1:3  Blessed [ be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
2Co 1:4  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2Co 1:5  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
2Co 1:6  And whether we be afflicted, [ it is] for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, [ it is] for your consolation and salvation.
2Co 1:7  And our hope of you [ is] stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so [ shall ye be] also of the consolation.
2Co 1:8  For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
2Co 1:9  But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
2Co 1:10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

That is about as good a reason for suffering and consolation as I have ever read.
We may struggle to believe the words you have written here:
“lately the revelation that He works all in all, that He wounds and heals, that He brings the storm then calms it, that He is working ALL in ALL, all that is in me all that is around me, ALL, that He makes me marred then refashions me as He sees fit, that the carnal man can go hang himself God is God!”
We are blessed above all men, just to have an appreciation of these spiritual matters.
Keep us in your prayers. Thanks so much for sharing such revelations with me. I feel so very blessed to sit here and read such things from brothers all around the world.
